Spring is here! I said it. I’m not taking it back. It’s here and it’s going to stay (lol). With spring comes things like spring cleaning, home decorating and renovating and luckily Edmonton’s ultimate Home + Garden Show returns to help you with all the home and kitchen improvements you may or may not know you wanted this season!
Note: this is a sponsored post promoting the Edmonton Home + Garden Show.
Mike and I moved into a new house about six months ago and have been slowly adding furniture pieces to make the house our home so this year I’m especially interested in attending the Edmonton Home + Garden Show for some home inspiration!
There’s lots of great features, exhibits and vendors at the show, but there are three features in particular that caught my eye and should be on your list of Must-Visits / To-Dos at the Edmonton Home + Garden Show!

3 Must Visit Features at the Edmonton Home + Garden Show (March 21-24, 2019)
1. The Cooking Stage
One of my favourite parts of any Edmonton Home + Garden Show is their Cooking Stage! This year, MasterChef Season 7 Winner DJ Shaun O’Neale will be headlining the EHGS Cooking Stage (appearing on Saturday March 23 at 6 p.m. and Sunday March 24 at Noon).
Chef O’Neale will be demonstrating a roasted garlic and wild mushroom risotto (yummmm!!). In addition to his demos, Chef O’Neale is also going to be walking through the ins and outs of kitchen design during the “Cooking up a Renovation” presentation on Saturday at 8 p.m. with interior designer Jamie Banfield! So if you’re interested in some kitchen upgrades, that’s definitely a topic you should sit in on for insights from both a chef and designer!

2. The Creative Hive Hub Workshops
There’s a bunch of awesome DIY home, interior and design craft workshops taking place at the Edmonton Home + Garden Show this year led by some of the city’s most creative artists and designers, in a space called The Creative Hive Hub presented by my friends Mike and Dez of The Creative Hive!

Add a spring floral wreath to your home with some help from Margaret-Ann Hinkley (Two Buds Floral) and Jessica McRae of Nesting by Nightingale.

YEG and Nesting by Nightingale. Or Or take in a tasty event led by The Art of Cake’s Gloria Bednarz and Alberta Mama‘s Christine Bruckmann!
